For those who left the Lakeland area on their spring break, you got out of town just in time. Between six and eight inches of fresh snow fell in the area late Sunday night and into Monday morning.

Crews were out very early Monday as the snow continued to fall. It's expected to continue to fall through this morning, according to the National Weather Service.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Department issued a release early Monday morning which stated: "Roads in Oneida County are in slippery, hazardous winter driving condition. Areas of dense fog are producing low visibilities this morning. If you have travel plans, watch for rapid changes in visibility and slow down if you should encounter dense fog. Use extreme caution if you have to venture out today."

No doubt, the new snow is great for the snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing enthusiasts in the area or for those planning to make a mid-March trip to the Northwoods. With temperatures ranging from the mid-20s Monday and Tuesday and then warming into the 30s for the weekend, the snow should, for the most part, stick around for any weekend travelers hoping to get in some late winter fun in the Lakeland area.

Temperatures are projected into the 40s for early next week, so it looks like spring will be taking hold after the weekend.
